Whackanape

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Whackanape is a powerful primate that, contrary to its name, thankfully never casts any instant death spells. A purple pallet swap of the Jackanape, it has proven the most popular of the troop and has gone on to appear in spinoff titles while the other two have yet to reappear.

Dragon Quest Monsters: Caravan Heart[edit]

The Wild Ape is a three-star member of the Animal family with a weight of 4. It naturally learns All-out, High Defense, and Glance Kick. Its in-game description reads "It lives in groups, but only one of them is the boss."

Trivia[edit]

The 'napes bear a striking similarity to the Oozaru transformations from Akira Toriyama's manga Dragonball.
